polls before self-destructing. finally, romney ended up one-on-one with rick santorum. and the two primary night that is kept us up the longest will be the states that will keep us up on tuesday, iowa, and a few weeks later santorum was declared the victor and then ohio. >> we are actually looking at recount provisions in the state of ohio. our models have it that close. >> romney's struggle in ohio was partly rooted in the 2008 new york times op-ed he wrote just weeks after obama won calling for managed bankruptcy but said the government should only guarantee private loans. quote, detroit needs a turnaround, not a check, he wrote. the piece was entitled "let detroit go bankrupt." romney survived the primary gauntlet and let republican super pacs hammer the president on the air. the campaign spend a lot of time defining romney before romney was able to define obama. romney was criticized for taking a week off in july for campaigning about the obama's strategy and for bundling the trip to israel, europe and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce t
. remember, he went in and destroyed rick santorum, destroyed newt gingrich with huge amounts of super pac money. you can do that and clear the field for yourself in the primaries in the caucuses and you can destroy house members. is that still true with big money? >> i believe both those statements are still true. look, in house races you still have -- the media markets are small enough that a relative small amount of money can provide the loudest megaphone in the race, louder than the candidates themselves. and so they can still influence those races. that's certainly true. and, look, there's no other way to explain the way that mitt romney got the republican nomination than through the kind of metaphorical equivalent of firebombing at dresden when it came to rick perry, newt gingrich, and rick santorum. despite all the problems with the republican base, he won through overwhelming financial force and a lot of that money did come from restore our future from the super pac that was backing him. he could not have been the nominee had it not been for that money. >> michael, i want you to re
not to run for president in 2012. but friends of the tea party like newt gingrich, rick santorum, herman cain, rick perry and michele bachmann did. i caught up with bachmann at the state fair in 2010. she was running for re-election for congress and was at the height of her influence. >> i don't take it for granted. i don't take any election for granted. thank you. >> reporter: in 2012 not only did her support drop quickly in the presidential race, she barely won her congressional race this week. it was worse for two other tea party favorites. todd akin lost his senate race in missouri. his effort not helped by this comment. >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> reporter: and richard mourdock lost his senate race in indiana after he said this. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> reporter: the tea party's anti-government message continues to resonate with many. but arguably, the group's policies and miscues might have cost the gop a chance to be the majority p
, and contributor and former communications direct or to senator rick santorum, robert trainham. let's talk twinkies. just kidding. i just have that on my mind. i want to talk about the party, beth, and you spent a long time before coming to washington in florida. let's talk about marco rubio's role. we'll talk about bobby jindal but marco rubio just happened to go to iowa. what a great guy. this is someone who has national aspirations clearly. from your close read on him, is he someone who can make that leap? he went from the state legislature to the u.s. senate seamlessly. going from senate to presidential candidate is another. does he have it in him? >> if you watch marco rubio speak, not necessarily the speech in iowa -- >> this is what you would expect a republican to say. >> but the convention speech where he's giving it the full treatment, i mean, there are very few politicians that can do what he can do which is make an audience feel something. he can really connect. he's really everything that mitt romney was not able to do. >> i totally agree and i think you wind up in some ways fight the
santorum and we can do that. and that's a natural inclination of evangelicals but in the end we want someone who shares our values in terms of the policies that will recognize religious freedom, that will recognize the importance of the family and to the point of the caller made about the difference between the inner city families and he made some allusion to the white caucasian family has access to more government support. actually what strengthens the opportunitieso that children have is that family unit, that mom and dad that they grow up with. unfortunately, what we've seen in the inner city that we now are at a point where 70% of our children in the inner city are being raise bid single parents and so they're missing that influence that most -- in most cases of a father. and that's important. it's important both in the life of a girl and of a boy. for a young man they learn how to control their masculinity, they learn their socialization skills from their father. and then that daughter from the father learns that sense of self-worth and is one of the main factors in causing youn

. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was a republican nominee for pr
santorum was the candidate, and michele bachmann as well. it was just so up and down, you know, that's part of the way the democrat system works going state by state and fight for it. there's benefit to that. every voter in new hampshire got a perm visit with mitt romney, michele bachmann, herman cain, it forces you to do that, but in a primary, you wouldn't have the opportunity as a voter or the candidates wouldn't have that challenge to have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there's good and bad parts of it, but, yeah, it does create some challenges, no question. >> on the super packs on the republican side spent over $700 million, something like that, and it looks like, you know, aachieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted so where does that leave that system, and what does that say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome. with that much money with no return on it. >> a couple thoughts, one, you help me op this because there's an editorial about it or somebody wrote it for him, he's too important to write his own anymore.

mcconnell, the leaders reverses the guys outside the beltway. the guys in iowa, rick santorum, the folks in south carolina who gave the primary to newt gingrich. beyond that, i feel -- ever since george of the bush's second term, there has been an anti-establishment reaction within the republican party. they were embarrassed and angry with the bush administration. conservatism turned out to not be what they wanted. they wanted small government conservatism. i think everybody loves to many people into the tea party caldron. but you get the types that are determined to come here and do something against leadership. in ohio, he mentioned he likes the trappings of office, if you will. he mentioned to me, how much leadership can you exert? how much control can you exert over your own conference? given the freshmen. and he said to be, it is not the freshmen. he said it is some of the older members. he did not say who. i would have preferred if he did. that is those who are trying to have perfect scores on these ratings. they are the problem. because anti-leadership is good for them. and it is
anybody who mitt romney was. as soon as it won the nomination, i think it was one rick santorum dropped out, they decided to focus on discipline. they thought any topic that was not on obama are the economy was not worth a dollar spent. is spent entirely until just before the convention on banging on the economy and the obama. to a certain extent, we have an incumbent president running for re-election, it is a referendum on the incumbent. it is a referendum on the economy. but the thing about it is, you have got to define your own candidate in a way and a positive way biographical advertising and testimonial advertising. you need to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual. think of the boy scouts. that is a general idea. that is a general thing you want to get across. you need to apply that to your candidate in order to protect them from the slime that is coming. in the romney campaign, they adamantly chose not to do that. the obama campaign, give credit where credit is due, they saw their opponent was undefined. i sat with some focus groups. other than a romney was
to be our candidate. newt gingrich was going to be our candidate. rick santorum was going to be our candidate. i don't want to leave out michele bachmann. i think she was a our can date for a while too. it was up and down. that's, part of the way our system works our democratic system works as we go state by state and fight for it. there is some benefit for that. it forces you to deal with voters. every voter in new hampshire got a personnal visit from michele bachmann, herman cain. in a national primary you wouldn't have the opportunity as voter. more importantly the candidates wouldn't have to be in the town hall meetings and go through it. there are some good and bad parts of it. it does create some challenges, no question. >> steve schwarzman. >> rob, on, the super pacs on the republican side probably spent over $700 million, something like that. and it looks like, you know, they achieved almost nothing in terms of electing candidates that they targeted. so where does that leave that system? and what does it say about anything? it's a pretty stunning outcome with that much money
, newt gingrich and rick santorum that gave a lot of ammunition to the obama team when they went after mr. romney's time at bain capital and the obama team kept that theme going. >> they won, the president won and should be congratulated and the team should be congratulated because they put together a strategy and tactics that won a race that was very difficult to win but i think they're going to be governing and presiding over an incredibly divided country and unless they figure out a way to unify that and deal with that it's going to be very difficult. >> i got to bring this question to george will. correct me if i'm wrong, george. right after president obama was elected four years ago, went to your house, didn't he, for a dinner party reaching out to conservatives, that was supposed to be the promise of his first term, a person who could heal the division in this country. clearly though he's been re-elected not all that healing has happened. what went wrong in that relation between the president and who is to blame and how much on each side. >> books are already being written about wha
